Joseph Wixson and Cornelia Salsbury were the parents of my great-grandmother, Clarissa Wixson who married John Hurley Coon in Lexington, MI, in 1861. I am trying to finish a Coon genealogy by the end of this summer. I have been at a dead end with Cornelia. Coons, Wixsons, and Salsburys were all in eastern New York -- around Monterey/Orange -- before they migrated to Michigan. [The Coons and Wixsons migrated to that area from Dutchess County in about 1830. Did the Salsburys?]
Please e-mail me with your address. I'm trying to include everyone who is a descendant of Elias Coon, born about 1775, in Dutchess County, New York.
